Two interviews with Ginsborg

Posted in Denuncia's afterlife by nyudenuncia on April 13, 2009

Check out these two great interviews with our keynote speaker, Paul Ginsborg, on i-Italy and in Quale Stato.

Letizia Airos Soria’s article “Paul Ginsborg. A Professor as a Friend” perfectly captures Professor Ginsborg’s grace, wit and intellectual accuity.

New York based blogger in quale Stato, in coordination with Qui New York Libera, interviewed Paul Ginsborg during the proceedings of the conference. In the interview, Ginsborg addressed the role of the public intellectual in Italy, the viability of political alternatives to Berlusconi as well as the work of the journalist Marco Travaglio.

Thanks to Davide and his friends for uploading the interview onto youtube!  Read the post “Ginsborg su Travaglio, Berlusconi e la sinistra” on in quale Stato.

Stay tuned for photos from the conference proceedings!

Ciao a tutti!

We want to thank you for your participation!

We had an incredible time with all of you.  Your papers were wonderful and inspiring. The discourse that the conference shaped is far from over!  We want use this blog–and expand it–to keep the dialogue going. Please contact us if you have any ideas or would like to write a piece on the blog in the future. We hope you had a safe trip home and enjoyed the rest of your time in New York.

Professor Ginsborg told us numerous times how much he was impressed with the quality and energy of your presentations.  Indeed, we were struck by how the questions at the end of each session went on and on! So much stimulating discussion and reflection came out of your papers.

We want to draw attention to some articles regarding the conference in the  press from America Oggi, the insert of La Repubblica in the United States, i-Italy.org, as well as Il manifesto.

“Regime and Resistance” by George de Stefano of i-Italy

Ginsborg: «Da noi solo l’opposizione dei martiri» by Giovanna Pajetta of Il manifesto

Stay tuned! We will upload pictures of the conference–from the panels, roundtable, keynote, and candids–by the end of the week!

All our best,

Alessandra, Jonathan, and Valeria
